Connecting through Google Meet, Zoom, Vimeo, and YouTube.

YOUR PARTNER IN ARTS EDUCATION!

In challenging times we look to the arts to help us cope, express ourselves, and find inspiration. YA is here to help children reconnect to their school communities with joy, hope, and the ARTS! We have diverse roster of customized virtual programs in different art forms and cultural traditions, offering school-wide performance, and hands-on workshops and residencies. YA’s teaching artists are uniquely qualified for this moment–many with SEL experience. We’ve already anticipated and solved the technical and scheduling challenges schools will face in this school year. We are prepared to work with your district’s schooling structure: in-person, hybrid, or virtual. We also understand that budgets are tight. Thanks to our generous donors, virtual programs are being offered at a 25% discount* and include technical support–we’re all in this together!

YOUNG AUDIENCES PROFESSIONAL STAFF ARE HERE TO HELP:

  • We audition, preview, and run tech rehearsals for all virtual program offerings, ensuring the highest quality.
  • We recommend the best virtual programs to meet your needs and your budget.
  • We handle all communication to secure, schedule, and finalize your virtual programming.
  • We provide you with details about the content of our virtual programs.
  • We explain any technical requirements for the program.
  • We provide preparatory material for teachers to use in the classroom.
  • We are on-call with our 24-hour emergency number in case of issues.
